❝You’re going to meet many people with domineering personalities: the loud, the obnoxious.
Those that noisily stake their claims in your territory and everywhere else they set foot on.
This is the blueprint of a predator. Predators prey on gentleness, peace, calmness, sweetness
and any positivity that they sniff out as weakness. Anything that is happy and at peace they mistake for
weakness. It’s not your job to change these people, but it’s your job to show them that your peace and
gentleness do not equate to weakness. I have always appeared to be fragile and delicate but the thing is,
I’m not fragile or delicate. I am very gentle but I can show you that the gentle also possess a poison.
I compare myself to silk. People mistake silk to be weak but a silk handkerchief can protect the wearer
from a gunshot. There are many people who will want to befriend you if you fit the description of what
they think is weak; predators want to have friends that they can dominate over because that thing
makes them feel strong and important. The truth is that predators have no strength and no courage.
It is you who are strong, and it is you who has courage. I have lost many friends over the fact that when
they attempt to rip me, they can’t. They accuse me of being deceiving; I am not deceiving, I am just made of silk.
There are many more predators in this world, so I want you to be made of silk. You are silk.❞
